Does size matter?

I had a question from a reader considering the purchase of an X1. He wanted to know if there was a noticeable size difference between the X1 and an M and how it all compared to something like a Nikon DSLR. I understand his frustration because here in Houston, there's really no place you can go to see Leica cameras in person. Occasionally one will turn up at Houston Camera Exchange or Camera CoOp, but for the most part, this is a Nikon and Canon town.

I was just getting ready to pack up the X1, so that I can ship it to some lucky eBay winner this weekend, but I pulled it out to grab this quick comparison shot.

Nikon D7000 vs Leica M8 vs Leica X1

If you didn't realize how small the X1 is, hopefully this puts it into perspective.
